You can register as 1 or more type of intermediary
If you meet the requirements, you can register as more than 1 type of intermediary.
For example, ABC Accounts is a registered tax agent but also meets the requirements to register as a bookkeeper.

ABC Accounts registers as a bookkeeper in order to be able to link to the clients’ accounts without impacting the tax agent link.
